  1. Yes, Deluge is nice bittorrent client and I was using it for some time. But it was too "raw" and had many bugs when I tried it 🙁

    Maybe it's more stable these days 😀

  2. I prefer Transmission or Azureus, depending on if I’m doing other tasks on a lower-end system or not. Azureus’ customization is incredibly nice, but it is a bit resource-heavy.
